Because it’s Cool: 

As a meat eater who wants to ensure any meat I eat comes from a very high welfare source, charcuterie is the one thing I crave. Introducing Peelham Farm, who have been perfecting a range organic charcuterie and salamis made from their free-ranging pigs, sheep and beef for the the last 15 years.

Their air-dried salamis and hams are slowly cured in the natural air-flow of their on-farm curing facilities. Their salamis are made in natural casings with their own sea-salt based cure. They don’t use flavour enhancers, cure accelerators, pre-mixes, or artifical emulsifiers. This not only makes the British charcuterie great, it also makes it lactose and gluten-free.

Aside from the charcuterie, Peelham can also deliver pretty much any meat cut you desire from their grass-fed organic beef, grass-fed organic veal, grass-fed organic lamb, grass-fed organic mutton and free-range organic pork. Straight from the farm to your home, chilled and ready to cook or freeze.

Because it Matters: 

The clue to their ethics is in the grass-fed, organic, and free-range references above. The cattle and sheep are Pasture Fed for Life, which means they eat a diet that is natural to them and are not fattened up on grains. The pigs are genuinely free-ranging and allowed to forage.

No pesticides, herbicides or petro-chemical fertilisers are used and biodiversity on the farm is encouraged.

Peelham Farm sells veal from bulls from The Ethical Dairy, which is pioneering a new system of dairy farming – one that keeps the cows and their calves together for five months before weaning them, rather than separating them at just days old.

Selling the bull cows that don’t produce meat to Peelham Farm for veal and beef is an integral part of the success of this dairy system, because it provides a fair revenue stream and guarantees the bulls are well-treated and continue an organic life, going on to create meat that is nutritionally rich.
